Last Friday Gov. Dannel P. Malloy announced that . East Haven’s grant will fund its to help low- and moderate-income homeowners rehabilitate their homes.
Fifteen units are anticipated to be rehabilitated. Upgrades include roof replacement, heating systems, window replacement, and any other repairs needed to improve the general condition of the units.
East Haven's grant is one of 28 issued to Connecticut towns and comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Small Cities Community Development Block Grant Program; all grant money must be used "to improve the lives of residents through housing programs and community projects.”
Although the funds for this year's grant for East Haven has already been allocated, do you think the grant money could be put to a different, perhaps more effective, use in town?
